Convent property dispute

Files Suit

Katy Perry nun dispute imagePerry is in the middle of a legal dispute over the ownership of a former Catholic convent in the city’s Los Feliz neighborhood near downtown L.A. The hilltop property, with a swimming pool and a sweeping view of the San Gabriel Mountains, was once home to Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Archbishop Gomez says the property was entrusted to the diocese in 2005 and wants to sell the property to Perry for $14.5 million, but the nuns, who believe the property is theirs, have already entered into an agreement to sell it to real-estate developer Hollister for $15.5 million. Hollister plans to turn the property into a hotel, restaurant and bar, while Perry wants to use the building as her home. Archdiocese:

Unfortunately, the Archdiocese had to take civil action to protect against the unauthorized action by Ms. Hollister, which was undertaken after the preferred transaction had been accepted in consultation with the Sisters.

One of the sisters was not happy about Perry’s work:

Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and … if it’s all right to say, I wasn’t happy with any of it.

They said, however, that when Perry visited the sisters, she performed a gospel song and dressed conservatively.
